Hi Jose,

I missed you on #osm, but I think I've done similar [1]. Using a
perl script I was pointed at [2] (by dezhin on #osm when I asked a
similar question) I took the Tendring district boundary relation and
converted it into an Osmosis compliant polygon file. You pass the
script a relation id and it outputs a polygon file.
